The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools in respect of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months. As from 2012-13 this will also include students eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to "close the gap" between children from disadvantaged circumstances and those above the low-income threshold, it is not linked to a specific child, but is to be used for overall impact. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support students from low-income families.
For more information on Pupil Premium, its purpose, how the School uses the grant, eligibility, funding allocation information and how to request support , please read our Pupil Premium Policy 2020-2021
